First Family Photos

Good morning and welcome back to a new challenge over at Lasting Memories the challenge is Anything Goes with a Life's Moment theme. We were blessed last Monday with our newest Great Grandchild :) Her name is Emily Ann and well you'll see all the statistcs in an upcoming layout, but this layout features the photos that Amber took of the family:
How sweet are the moments of those first Family photos. Amber is Jessica's sister and both of them are our granddaughters. Thank goodness for facebook cause it is the only way we have to share in the excitement of this major Life Moment :) See Jessica and family live in South Dakota so it'll be till summer before we get to see Miss Emily Ann in person. So this is one of the pages that will be included in Emily's 1st year book I'm doing for a gift. The layout was pinterest inspired.
 This is Jessica our Granddaughter holding her daughter our Great Granddaughter Emily Ann. found out she has a head full of blonde hair :) The other 2 photos are of Jessica, her husband Kevan and Miss Emily Ann.
 When I went to start this layout I grabbed all the pinks that I had in this month's counterfeit kit, then pulled out all the baby girl stuff I have (now I'm ready to make this album with it all separated :) The pink cardstock, the heart border strips, the hot pink paper, the wooden veneer pieces scattered about the layout and the cut journaling scallop circles all came from the kit. The alphas came for the baby girl stuff I pulled for the layout. The family was a cut out I did with the silhouette one night using the red cardstock from last month's kit I put together.
The sweet moment 3X4 card is from a pack of me &my big ideas pack I had gotten 3 different packs of these cards in a swap box so when I cleaned out the box I put these in with my kit. The journaling sticker came from a sticker sheet in my current kit. I also added stickers from the one alpha pack I used on the layout. I journaled what she had wrote on facebook of the pictures
This is a picture that Amber took at the hospital of what they have on the wall in the pediatric section so I included that picture as well on the layout. More stickers from the alpha sheet and I made an embellishment with vellum and a piece of patter paper I found in one of my catchall boxes. The  circle with the script writing was one I had cut out earlier this month (yep lets get those scraps used up :) So Miss Emily Ann's book is started :) See you back here tomorrow with another project....
Thanks for stopping by today to see what's happening in my little corner of the world and I hoe you all join us over at Lasting Memories and show us your Life moments.
